28 September 2022

The Office of the Chief Whip in Parliament notes the arrest of ANC Member of Parliament and Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Transport, Comrade Mosebenzi Zwane, who handed himself over to the police this morning.
We have been informed by the MP that he was arrested and charged. We are also aware that he briefly appeared in the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s court today, 28 September 2022, and was released on R10 000 bail. The matter will return to court on 2 November 2022.

The Office of the Chief Whip notes that there are organizational processes that will unfold and has agreed with Cde Zwane that he will present himself to the ANC Integrity Commission and communicate with the Office of the Treasurer General in order to voluntarily follow the ANC step-aside procedure in line with ANC national conference resolution.

As the ANC Caucus, we will continue to monitor the situation and will not comment further on the charges against Cde Zwane as we want to allow the law to take its course.
